A philosophical argument - are they even leaks if they are not shared? :-)

Even if it's not widely spread it's still out there in places it shouldn't be :wink:

Well it’s certainly an impressive list, but it would mean I have to cut back even more on other themes, particularly SW. I already gave up Marvel almost entirely

Oh yes forgot about Hogsmeade. I suppose I thought that would be left for a year or so as we got similar in DA this year. That being said, we could get a Shrieking Shack / Honeydukes / Three Broomsticks combo with the figures based on POA. It would make the 'boring' (but really well printed) Ron and Hermione from this year's CMF make sense; the figure choices usually makes sense when you pair them with the sets released around them. Of course there is also the Chamber of Secrets, but I'm thinking that may be one of the $100 ish sets.

What worries me is that the Three Broomsticks would have better figures if it was based on the Half-Blood Prince version than the Prisoner of Azkaban. In PoA, there's Fudge, Hagrid and McGonagall but I don't remember any of them being different from the variants we already have. Obviously the main trio as well, but the only truly unique figure that would fit is Madam Rosmerta. Compare that to the Half-Blood Prince, where on top of Rosmerta there'd also be room for a Katie Bell minifigure - in fact, I'd argue that such a set is the only realistic place Katie might turn up in a set, unless they decide for some reason to release the entire Gryffindor Quidditch team. The thing is, all of the main trio's HBP variants were in the CMF series, and they're not going to put CMF releases unchanged into sets released the following year. Which means a HBP Three Broomsticks would have Rosmerta, Katie Bell and a Slughorn variant (and maybe Malfoy) - not enough of a draw to sell the set to anybody but completionists, especially since it's a minor location at best anyway.

If LEGO makes Hogsmeade or just the Three Broomsticks I think we're more likely to get these variants:

Hmm, interesting that it did turn out to be real but if I'm gonna be honest I'd have to say I don't really like the way it looks :sceptic:

Agreed, it looks less like a book and more like......some weird boom box?!?  It needed fewer varying brown tones and 'sections' so it was more consistent across the cover, really does not look much like the actual book in the film and looks like a bunch of random bits stuck together.  I am pretty much a completist with these sets but this is my first hard no in a long time.

This line is getting outrageously expensive if these rumored prices are true (and I mean overall cost to have them all). 250$, I did not expect another D2C (or quasi-D2C like Ninjago City Docks) already. By bet is on Hogsmeade, but I also wouldn't mind Gringotts with a very deep underground section to fit the roller coaster tracks and the Ironbelly that's on par with the Ninjago dragons

Same here. Don't mind the stickers for the title and eyes, it's just that the build around them doesn't even try to resemble the actual prop. It could a deliberate choice due to the play feature, but still not a good looking thing.

Hi everyone, 
I have been lurking here since april, can't believe thats already 300 pages ago! I was a full on lego-rookie until I got the Whomping Willow set for my 28th birthday. And well, I got almost all the sets of the 2018-2020 waves by now! One of the benefits of being an adult while getting into lego :) It has been a blast so far and I learned a lot about the theme and the lego-world from you guys on this thread!

Quick question (I'm very sorry if it has been asked before): When is the DA D2C coming to other stores (so stops being exclusive to lego S@H). Because there's a small business-lego shop I would love to support with this purchase but I also kinda want to have DA before Christmas. I asked the shop itself but he had no idea yet. The Hogwarts microscale D2C is available at many stores now, so I assume DA will be treated the same?

It usually takes half a year for other stores to start selling D2C's but most stores will end up selling it for a higher price than LEGO themselves

And welcome to EB btw :excited:

@Guyon2002  Aah thanks! That means I have a hard choice to make... Very excited about the rumours about the 2020 sets. Although my wallet isn't :snicker:

Back again with some more breadcrumbs (well.... they're a bit larger than crumbs) from my good friend. Looks like a ''pattern'' will be broken next year :excited:

76386 - $19,99

76387 - $39,99

76388 - $79,99

76389 - $129,99

76390 - $39,99

76392 - $59,99

76393 - $119,99

76394 - $39,99

76395 - $29,99

I said it in my previous ''info dump'' and I'll repeat it here: I trust my source completely and he's proven himself many times before (even if in those cases I couldn't share anything here on EB). But as always, don't immediately take these prices as fact and apply the usual grain of salt :wink:

Seems like that came out of nowhere... :tongue:

In all seriousness... the number of sets were waaaaaay more than expected...

Not necessarily... in US other stores sells D2C sets for the same price. Not sure about other regions though.

Wait, this thing is real after all? *huh* Well, my sincere apologies to the leaker(s) I didn‘t believe :blush:

Is the MBOM a GWP set for any particular month/day? 

I guess November, like the DA GWP in 2018 :classic:

Boy, am I glad I waited with purchasing Diagon Alley. At least this set has an exclusive sticker sheet. My patience payed off for once. That being said, it's not too desirable. But it's a funny display piece either way.

Now for the price list. I fear this is going to be the first year I will miss out on stuff. Just can't keep up with all the themes anymore

Extra info regarding the MBoM from Stonewars (this is for the Shanghai release btw): 

- Available from October 15th to November 15th

- Only at LEGOLAND Discovery Centers

- Requirement is 1399 Chinese yuan (roughly 178 euro) and only HP sets count towards your total

Requirements will most likely differ in other countries but if it's really this hard to get I'm definetely skipping it :tongue:

So are all these sets dropping in Winter? 

If they were they would've leaked alongside the 4 books. It's definetely the main summer wave (and probably an extra autumn wave as well)

I’m with you guys. While I appreciate more HP, I rather liked the more affordable waves. I snuck DA in this year, but if what next year looks like continues...I fear it may fall off for me, much like SW. Other themes & sets have already been kicked to the curb in favor of getting all of HP. 

And there's some affordable sets, too... :wink:

I need that MBOM GWP. Problem is, I’ve bought all the HP sets already this year. I’ll figure something out

Yeah, same problem here.

I'm officially taking a break from this theme.  My wallet can't withstand firepower of this magnitude!
